So your at school and your sitting right at the back of the class trying to disturb your other class mates so your not the only one not doing nothing. But why? Even though you may say " I wanna tell my bestie about what happened between me and that cute guy", the real reason is you can't actually do the work provided. Don't worry so many people have also been there, including me. You don't have to be embarrassed everyone has weaknesses and even though Miss Perfect over there may LOOK 'perfect' nobody is. Whether its maths or science, it doesn't matter, schools are there for a reason which is to help students learn and if you don't understand whatever you are learning about then the school isn't doing their job. Don't disturb your friends or doodle in your notebook actually put your hand up and tell the teacher that your not understanding whatever they are rambling about, well don't actually SAY that just tell them politely that you do not follow what they are trying to communicate. Or you could have a quite word with your professor, lecturer or teacher after class and tell them that you don't 'get' your work and maybe you could even ask for extra tutoring. Don't just stare at a bunch of numbers or weird words you can't pronounce, actually raise your hand and remember that you have to Speak Up in order to be heard.
